Y’Shua is YHVH
When people realize that the Tanakh is still valid in our lives today, they very often start to struggle with the concept of â€œYHVH echad.â€ What most people do not realize is that physical manifestations of YHVH also happened in the Tanakh. Y’Shua is however far more than just a physical manifestation as His name already indicates. Can we believe in the divinity of Y’Shua and still hold on to the Shema?
The names of other Deities
It is written in Scripture that we are not to mention the names of other deities. Is it correct to understand this to mean that we are not to, even say these names when referring to another god? In this study, we shall see what we can learn from scripture in this regard. We shall also look into the roots of words. There are teachings that state that we cannot use certain English words like mercy, grace, faith and wisdom because the roots of these words are of heathen or pagan origin. We shall show you from Scripture how both these teachings are in contradiction with Scripture.
Who is Y’shua?
Have you ever wondered who Y’shua really is? In our study of Torah, we can forget who Y’shua is and what He did for us. This happened to me too. I was so busy learning Torah, that I started to wonder where Y’shua fitted in. It was almost as if He got vaguer and vaguer until I realized with a shock what has happened. I realized that I have lost that joy I had in me, I have become hard inside. I asked YHVH to reveal Y’shua again to me, and it started changing. I know now more than ever that we cannot exist without Him Who redeemed us. It was almost as if something died inside me at that time, but it is alive again. That is the reason I want to share this with you, in order for you not to forget and to remain alive in Him.
